Putting Playlists in the Order You Want Them

Playlists appear in your iPod in alphabetical order (which makes sense). But what if you want a particular playlist at the top of the list (maybe your favorite playlist)? You can do that pretty easily by pulling an alphabet scam—basically, you just add an asterisk (*) before the playlist’s name. For example, if your favorite playlist is called “Dance Mix,” you’ll just double-click directly on the playlist’s name (in the Source list on the left of the iTunes window) and rename it with an asterisk before the playlist’s name (so it would now be named “*Dance Mix.” Now that playlist will appear at the top position (but it still won’t move above any Smart Playlists). Easy enough, eh?
